'''Volunteering''':  You can volunteer your time with Lang Tengah Turtle Watch [http://www.langtengahturtlewatch.org], an organisation that focuses on incubating sea turtle eggs to save them from poachers and help boost population numbers. 
 
The team lives in open-air jungle huts just behind the beach on Turtle Bay.  Volunteers participate in nighttime patrols around the island in search of nesting mothers, relocation of eggs back to Turtle Bay and then monitoring of the nests in the daytime.  Afternoons are free for volunteers to go cliff jumping, jungle trekking, snorkelling or relaxing on the private beach!  This small, and usually young, group of people eat sleep and live together - if you're adventurous, energetic and passionate about helping the environment whilst having a real jungle-living experience this is the organisation to join!  The site is operational between March and October every year.
 
 
 
Tourists on the island are also invited to come and see nest inspections at the Lang Tengah Turtle Watch Sanctuary, where staff, interns and volunteers will give you a talk on all things turtle.  More details about visiting or volunteering with Lang Tengah Turtle Watch can be found on their website or their Facebook page.
